nomads are the indigenous people of Afghanistan known globally for their
vibrant attire and exquisite jewellery. A member of this colourful and diligent
tribe has been painted in the Batik style, making this painting a rare and
beautiful amalgamation of two rich cultures- Afghanistan and Indonesia.
woman is clad in the traditional attire of her tribe folk, in a deep red and
flaming orange shade, decorated with tiny dots and ethnic designs. On her high
raised bun she wears an exquisite head ornament, accompanied by heavy earrings
and a gorgeous necklace. All the ornaments are made of silver and studded with
beads and semi-precious stones, available locally. The lady’s face appears
contemplative, her presence on the canvas made prominent by the blue-hued
background. On her lap sits a lamb, undoubtedly a prized possession for the
Kuchis whose livelihood depends on their herd.
